taught Study Skills such as annotation of text,
paraphrasing, concept mapping, graphics reading, etc, within

amongst other things that "For
those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we
have a simple request. Honor his example of service,
accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk
outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down
